Nigerians, especially prominent citizens, now collapse and die mainly due to their ignorance of preventable diseases.
Speaking in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, at the Forever Living Products Success showcase event held on Saturday, May 19, 2012, a medical practitioner, Dr. Titilola Duro-Aina, lamented the alarming rate at which people in the developing world, including Nigeria, now suffer and die from heart-related diseases which could easily be prevented or managed with appropriate supplements.
“Recently, the Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos, Professor Adetokunbo Babatunde Sofoluwe, suffered and died of heart attack. This is the ugly trend that Forever Living Products wants to stop. 73. 7 per cent of deaths that occur nowadays are due to preventable diseases”, she said, adding: “What is killing people today is ignorance”.
Dr. Duro-Aina stressed the need for Nigerians, including doctors and other professionals, to embrace the products of Forever Living Products in order to tackle most illnesses, saying that it is disturbing how many people now die of terminal diseases like heart attack.
And outside Nigeria, acclaimed athletes, including high profile footballers have recently succumbed to diseases related to the heart, a situation that triggered an advise from the FLP Managing Director, Mr. Cornelius Tay at the event in Ibadan.
Speaking on the prevalence of these diseases, Mr. Tay, said one of the reasons for the monthly Success showcase programme of the company is not only to celebrate FLP’s esteemed distributors and commend their great efforts to make millions of Nigerians happier through good health, but to bring nature’s best health and beauty products closer to everyone. “Let us wake up.
This is 2012. Forever Living Products is telling everyone to take their destiny in their own hands. One thing that Forever Living Products is committed to do is to keep people away from sickness. If you use FLP products regularly, you will not go frequently to hospitals.
Part of our Success showcase programme is to give everyone all the important information and training and educate all on what it takes to live a healthier, longer, happier life”, he said.
Experts on heart-related diseases say that Forever CardioHealth, launched at FLP Super Rally in Dallas, USA in 2009, is acknowledged globally as one of the best cardio vascular formula, containing the broadest range of vitamins that can provide all that one needs to ensure a healthy heart.
Forever CardioHealth, with CoQ10, they say, is a special formula designed to easily dissolve in Aloe Vera Gel to provide three important nutritional supports for cardio vascular health. Another product in the FLP stable is L-Arginine (Argi+) which was launched in the USA in 2010.
Experts advise that people should not wait for symptoms before they go to their medical doctors. Rather, everyone is advised to regularly consult their doctors for medical check up, even when symptoms are not visible.
This is because the first sign you may have of a heart disease, according to experts, could just be a stroke. But the good news is that heart related disease is one cause of death that is preventable. So, it is important to be enlightened about it because a lot of what happens as far as the heart is concerned can be prevented.
In a special training at the Ibadan FLP event, Sapphire Manager, Mrs. Nene Lawani, while making a presentation on how to be successful in multi-level marketing business, advised people to reject poverty and embrace all the lofty ideas being introduced by the company.
The Ibadan event attracted distributors from the city and other parts of the South West. Many gave testimonies on how Forever had changed their lives for the better. Speaking on her recognition at the event, Mrs. Ojujesu Orifowomo attributed her success in FLP business to the power of God and the support she received from her family. “Ï am overjoyed by this FLP gesture and would advise everyone to join and share in the benefits that the company provides”, Mrs. Orifowomo said.
Wherever the FLP Success Showcase train had gone so far in 2012: Abuja, Kaduna, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Warri and Lagos, the story has been the same, incredible excitement, success stories, testimonies of transformed lives.
